The facility was agreed as part of the EU-Turkey Action Plan and is based on a Commission decision of November 2015. It has a Steering Committee, which is chaired by the Commission and features Member State representatives and Turkey in an advisory role. It takes decisions on issues related to the strategy, on what actions (humanitarian and non-humanitarian) are to be financed, in what amount and through what instrument. Once the funds have been allocated, the usual process is followed in accordance with the financial rules and the requirements of the chosen instrument. The facility can channel funding through the ENI, the DCI, the IPA, the IcSP, as well as through humanitarian aid, and can also transfer funds to the Madad Fund for the Syrian crisis.
